Rising Up With Sonali

Wall Street and The Return of Loan Sharks

Ten years after the sub-prime mortgage crisis kicked off the Great Recession, a new and troubling trend has emerged that once more preys on homebuyers – it’s the contract-for-deed transactions that private equity Wall Street firms are engaging in. We’ll turn to Chuck Collins on our show today to find out who these new “loan sharks” came from and how people are being impacted. Then, we’ll bring you an exclusive first interview with writer John Nichols about his newest book Horsemen of the Trumpocalypse: A Field Guide to the Most Dangerous People in America. Nichols will discuss some of the problematic personalities that form the current American Presidency and why they should be seen as a collective danger to American democracy.
